With over 4,000 employees based in the region contributing US$ 3 billion in revenue, the Asia-Pacific market is of strategic importance to ENGIE’s business globally. ENGIE’s move to Singapore also accompanies its plan to double its workforce in Asia-Pacific within the next ten years, driven by the region’s stunning economic growth and subsequent demands for clean energy.
“As the leading energy, technology and economic hub in Asia-Pacific, Singapore is a natural choice for us as we grow our footprint in this region. Many of our customers are based here with businesses across the region, our move will put us closer to them, giving them better access to ENGIE solutions and services that will support their growth in a sustainable manner,” said Paul Maguire, CEO of ENGIE Asia-Pacific. “Singapore’s vision to be a Smart Nation and its leadership in innovation and sustainability provides ENGIE with an ideal platform where we can build, test and scale our innovations, cementing our position as the pathfinder to Asia-Pacific’s energy transition.”
Low-carbon, high-performing and sustainable energy for Asia-Pacific
With approximately 7,000 multinational corporations (MNCs) running their Asia-Pacific operations out of Singapore, the close proximity of ENGIE’s new regional headquarters to many of its clients will foster closer collaborations for innovative solutions and services that can be customised to meet the needs of the different markets.
ENGIE’s latest move follows their S$80 million investment announced in March this year, when the Group announced the launch of its Centre of Expertise in Singapore to drive digital initiatives and technical competencies in energy efficiency for the region. In addition to developing and rolling out digital solutions and services across Asia-Pacific, ENGIE will continue to serve its clients and partners across the region through its network of offices, mirroring its existing footprint in Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.
With a focus on diversifying the energy mix for the region, ENGIE will continue to invest and develop renewable and clean energy solutions including solar, geothermal, wind, biomass, gas and decentralised generation to help support Asia-Pacific’s robust economic growth.
Building in Singapore for Asia-Pacific
ENGIE’s new Asia-Pacific headquarters will be located at Golden-Agri Plaza along Pasir Panjang road, together with several ENGIE’s business units, including ENGIE Services Asia-Pacific, ENGIE Services Singapore, ENGIE Factory, ENGIE Lab Singapore, and ENGIE Axima. ENGIE’s Asia Pacific leadership team will also be based in Singapore where the localised executive team will facilitate knowledge transfer from Europe while overseeing the growth of the Group in the region. With its regional headquarters opening in Singapore, ENGIE will bring its values-focused culture to attract, retain and develop talents to help drive energy innovation and excellence in the region.
Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board of Singapore (EDB), ENGIE’s new headquarters in Singapore is expected to grow its localised highly-skilled workforce, further establishing the city state as the authority in energy management in the region.
